Key environmental challenges & the role of the Sustainable Development Goals
19 November 2019
The European Marine Board’s Policy Brief No6 ‘Navigating the Future V: Recommendations for the Ocean Decade’ will be launched at European Parliament on 19th November, 2019 as part of the 'Key environmental challenges & the role of the Sustainable Development Goals' event. The Policy Brief provides recommendations developed by European experts, as part of Navigating the Future V, to ensure that ocean science supports and guides the implementation of the SDGs, which is the focus of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainability (2021-2030). There is a need for a solutions-oriented, transdisciplinary marine research agenda to address the societal outcomes of the Ocean Decade. An increased use of ocean resources is required to achieve the SDGs and this must be done within the context of protecting biodiversity and ecosystem services to ensure their long-term sustainability. This event is co-organized by the European Bureau for Conservation and Development.
